...click. A post Europa League home game, coming from behind, Soldado scoring, pressing, securish defensively, hanging on in the dying minutes for the victory against Everton, Spurs found that gear and clicked into it.
...it could be fun. After avoiding defeat in their 18th straight Europa League group game by beating Partizan Belgrade, Spurs qualified for the knockout stages, in a bizarre game.
...week. Another dispiriting result looked to be following another dispiriting display by Spurs until a bit of luck here and there saw them overcome Hull 2-1.
...again. The Jocks are consoling themselves that the game against the Auld Enemy didn't count for anything, it's the Euros that really matter, but it doesn't half make them look bad being outclassed and beaten by Roy's mob.
...rubbish”. That was the plaintive cry from one viewer as the Wembley crowd sang their delight at another insipid performance by England as they won yet another Euro 2016 qualifier, this time over Slovenia.

...visit White Hart Lane. Two teams rocked up to play Spurs this week both needing a lift in fortunes Newcastle left with a reinvigorated season Brighton left being out of the League Cup.
...day. Harry Kane in goal, bumbling an easy shot into the back of the net as Spurs finally got their Europa League going with a 5-1 victory over Asteras Tripolis.
...minutes. As Spurs again capitulated to Man Citeh it was a game full of Spursisms, missed chances, inept refereeing, needless sending off, individual errors, opposition player having a blinder it was only missing an own goal for the full house.
...has none. England's latest two Euro 2016 qualifiers against San Marin and Estonia show Roy's diamond is a bit of overpriced paste tat.
...recently? It took the visit of Pochettino's previous club to finally start to see what Pochettino is trying to achieve at his new club. As Spurs beat Southampton one nil.
...better. Some were happy that Spurs held Besiktas to a draw in the second Europa League group game, while others watched another poor performance with Hugo Lloris again saving a huge embarrassment.
